The Edinburgh Residence is a collection of 29 elegant suites through three adjoining Victorian houses in the West End of Edinburgh. Categorized as ‘Classic’, ’Grand’ and ‘Townhouse’, the suites are more like apartments, with magnificent proportions that really allow you to spread out and make yourself at home. In some, the sitting rooms are adjoining, and in others they are self-contained.

Neighbourhood
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

Very grand ... suites are lovely and spacious and we had a great view Private and quiet ... away from the hustle of the city ... but a good mile and a half to get to main attractions. Breakfast served in the room ... lovely ... and a slightly decadent feel to the experience.

Located in a Georgian townhouse close to the Dean village, minutes away from Princes street and Thistle street. Each suite is like a small apartment or a studio, except that there is a 24-hour reception and you basically get all the services of an hotel. We had a suite with

Dear Sally i, Thank you for the lovely review of The Edinburgh Residence. I will be sure to pass your kind comments on to the team members who will be as delighted as I am reading your review. Each year a selection of rooms are refurbished to ensure that each room is fresh, nicely decorated and comfortable for our guests. I am pleased to hear that the hard work pays off and that you were very happy with your suite. Having breakfast served in your suite is certainly a perk. It gives you a little extra time in the morning to relax before a big day of exploring. I hope you enjoyed Edinburgh's New Year celebrations and perhaps we will have the pleasure of welcoming you again during 2019! Kind regards, Max Heidrich Resort Operations Manager

Dear H421FMmattp, Thank you for your kind review of The Edinburgh Residence. It is great to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay. I will be sure to share your comments with the staff members. As you mentioned our rooms are deceptively big. The hotel spreads across a total of three buildings that were all originally built as family homes. Number 7, where the entrance is, has a particularly impressive history as it was built in 1981 for the Lord Advocate of Scotland! Having the breakfast served in the room is nice in the morning. It gives you a little extra time to prepare for your Edinburgh adventures. The chef will be delighted that you enjoyed this particular service. I hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you again. Perhaps in the New Year for one of the many Edinburgh festivals? Kind regards, Max Heidrich Resort Operations Manager

Dear Aquinasmagister, It is a pleasure to read such a wonderful review. Thank you very much for taking the time to share your kind words about your stay at The Edinburgh Residence. We think having breakfast served in the comfort of your suite is a nice addition to the service. It gives you a little extra time to relax in the morning before your Edinburgh adventures! We are situated in a lovely area of the West end that has plenty to offer as well as being only a short walk to the city center. We are delighted that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay and hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you again. Perhaps for a long weekend over Easter?
